The latest injury reports involving standout wide receivers Aaron Jones, Mike Williams, and J.K. Dobbins have fantasy football owners concerned.
Latest news on Aaron Jones, Mike Williams and J.K. Dobbins
- Aaron Jones
Aaron Jones appears to be a weekly fixture on the Green Bay Packers injury report as a limited participant.
He was restricted all week and then had no designation for the weekend. Until we hear otherwise, fantasy managers should not be concerned.
- Mike Williams
UPDATE 6: Williams (ankle) did not practice on Thursday, but he was seen working off to the side with Chargers Director of Sports Performance Anthony Lomando.
UPDATE 5: Williams (ankle) will miss the Cardinals game on Sunday.
UPDATE 4: Coach Brandon Staley said Monday that Williams “kind of had a re-aggravation” of his previous ankle injury against the Chiefs on Sunday night, but that it was “not a significant re-injury,” according to Eric Smith of the Chargers’ official site.
UPDATE 3: He is questionable for the game against Arizona in Week 12.
UPDATE 2: Williams (ankle) is officially listed as questionable, but he is expected to play against the Chiefs on Sunday.
UPDATE: Head coach Brandon Staley stated on Monday that Williams (ankle) will return to practice this week.
After suffering a high ankle sprain against the Seahawks in Week 7, the veteran wide receiver has missed the last two games.
The owners are hoping that after a week of practice, the veteran wideout will be able to play against the Chiefs on Sunday night.
In Week 2, Williams had eight receptions (10 targets) for 113 yards and a touchdown against Kansas City. Williams should be considered a candidate if he is ready to go.
The Chargers’ offenses have missed Williams’ big-play ability in the passing game, so his return is timely.
If Williams is fully healthy, he should be a WR2 in fantasy against a Chiefs defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season.
UPDATE 1: J.K. Dobbins (knee) practiced for the second day in a row on Thursday, but the Ravens aren’t expected to activate him from injured reserve before Sunday’s game against the Broncos.
UPDATE: Coach John Harbaugh said on Thursday that Dobbins’ knee surgery was “a smashing success as far as you can tell right now.”
Dobbins returned from a torn ACL, LCL, meniscus, and hamstring in Week 3.
The Baltimore Ravens, on the other hand, announced in Week 6 that Dobbins’ knee had flared up during their game against the Giants.
He was then placed on injured reserve before Week 7, which meant Dobbins would have to miss at least four games, which, combined with the Ravens’ Week 10 bye, means he won’t be back until at least Week 11.
We learned last week from head coach John Harbaugh that Dobbins’ surgery went well.
Dobbins provided an update on the Purple Playbook show this week, stating that he “didn’t get reinjured” and did not injure himself. Dobbins admitted to not being himself. A closer examination revealed scar tissue that rendered him unrecognizable.
